Tunnel Of Oppression committee seeks groups, university units to participate in Tunnel 2013
Focusing on the many ways that oppression can affect individuals and groups, Montana State University will host its second annual Tunnel of Oppression. Loosely based on the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, the Tunnel of Oppression is a campus grassroots diversity program that originated in 1993 at the Western Illinois University. The event is now utilized by campuses across the country as a way to build awareness on a variety of contemporary social justice issues and types of oppression that people experience. February 28 and 29, 2013, the Strand Union Ballrooms will be transformed into an interactive tour created by the various student groups and university units on campus.
Groups will selected topics dealing with different forms of oppression and implement exhibits in this two day event aimed at pushing students to think about how oppression affects individuals in different ways and create discussion around these issues.
The Tunnel will consist of guided tours through the exhibits, ending in the Room of Hope, where tour groups will de-brief with discussion. If you are interested in getting involved please contact the Tunnel of Oppression Group Coordinator Jesse Whyte at
